Death of a person receiving Injury Benefit

If you die while getting Injury Benefit, payment will continue for 6 weeks to your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant if your payment:

  • included an increase for your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant,

     or

  • did not include an increase for your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant because they were getting a social welfare payment of their own.

We should be told of the death as soon as possible so that we can arrange to continue this payment. A Widow’s,Widower’s or Surviving Civil Partner's Pension or a One-Parent Family Payment will not be paid until the end of the 6 week period.

Death of a qualified adult or qualified child

If a qualified adult or qualified child dies, the increase due for that dependant will continue for 6 weeks.
